More > ‘Red Army’ and their Romanian allies, to the east; Karoly was a teenage boy who was used as human-shield by Romanian 'liberators' in Hungary.

During the 14th century, Queen Margaret Atterdag of Denmark welded together the bickering kingdoms of Scandinavia. Her alliance of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark was called “the Kalmar... More > Union.” As the Little Ice Age bore down upon the Nordic Settlement on Greenland, she called upon the Atlantic Earl, Prince Henry Sinclair, and Templar Knights to rescue 4,000 stranded farmers.

In later years, these Nordic immigrants were identified as “White Indians” that explorers and pioneers found in Nova Scotia, Massachusetts, and New York in the 17th century.

The war in Syria caused over 470,000 victims, over 7 million internally displaced people and over 5 million refugees. The Syrian Ba'ath party also bears responsibility to a certain extent for the... More > campaign of mass rape by Assad’s soldiers during the civil war, which was perniciously effective in both oppressing communities and provoking defections to the loosely formed Free Syrian Army. Hence the Syrian Ba'ath party – and its leader Bashar al-Assad – must make it into a priority to bring offenders of sexual violence to justice; and also commit themselves to raise awareness about empowering women to combat sexual violence: so that human rights, gender equality and the rule of law can finally be manifested in Syria. Critical, but also deeply sensitive and humane, this book endeavours to improve public policy in Syria, so that a just social peace can be manifested in the country. Social challenges – such as civil unrest, military dictatorship and social inequality – are also explored in this work.< Less
